    "Some pros, some cons, and a lot of red tape"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - 22 vacation days a year
    - Talented employees and team members
    - Excellent parental leave policy (3 weeks fully paid for new fathers, 6 weeks fully paid for adoptive parents, doesn't come out of vaction balance).
    - Great brand recognition/resume builder

    Cons

    -Low pay.
    -Leadership don't seem to be on the same page as one another, which causes a lot of confusion and chaos downstream.
    -Process, Process, Process. Congress has less red tape.
    -IFS are second class citizens - not unusual for professional services companies but still a con.
    -or teams with bonuses, lunch, gift cards,etc
    -Very politcally correct environment.

    Prior to the reorg, this was a fantastic place to work with career opportunities, strong teams, and great morale. Since then, it has become just a job.

    Advice to Management

    -Get rid of some of the red tape and push management decisions further down the org chart (say to someone lower than Sr. Director level). We have very smart, very talented people here. Let them use their smarts and talent to help make us more competitve in the market place.
    -Pay bonuses and annual raises. There's no better way for a company to say "we don't value you" than by eliminating bonuses and raises. Good employees are leaving and eventually you will be stuck with nothing but poor performers who couldn't leave for another job even if they wanted to.

    "If you are an experienced Administrative Professional....STAY AWAY FROM PwC!!!!"

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    1. unlimited sick leave; you don't have to use your vacation time
    2. definite perks if you come in at the associate or above level...don't come in as an admin and think you will be able to "work" your way up to associate...The EA manager in my office made this sound like it was virtually impossible to do!

    Cons

    1. IFS staff - especially EAs are treated like children and are carefully monitored by the EA manager

    2. If you are an EA, your work hours are told to you and there is no working from home if the weather is bad or if you have a sick dependent to care for...the "work life balance mantra is a joke for IFS staff.

    3. You have nothing of substance to do...all day you will sit and enter time from arrogant people who you will have to "hassle" to get them to give you their time on a daily basis, there is some travel arrangements to be done for the people you support, and then there's preparing and processing the expense reports...if you ever have time to get to it. Literally, all day, all I did was enter time....

    4. EAs in the WNTS office have to use a formula when submitting their own time -- and get this, you will have to use the client codes off of the individual timesheets of the people you support. It will take you 2-3 hours just to enter your own time....what a waste of time and skills!

    5. Bottom line, don't come to PwC, if you are an experienced/seasoned admin professional -- it is a waste of time!!

    Advice to Management

    Treat the EA staff with more respect.
